    Hi there

    I have a 49 3100 with a mid-60's SBC 283. It has be converted to 12v and has a Mallory unilite distributor with vacuum advance. I can tell the guy before me did some sketchy repairs to the distributor internally and it now fails to deliver a spark.

    In addition to the unilite distributor, I am running a ignition coil and resistor.

    I am wanting to swap it out with something comparable. Does anyone have any good suggestions or tips?

    Thanks

    I'm very fond of the stock GM HEI distributors .

    I know there are Chinese copies but I get stock ones used and buy new old stock DELCO - REMY caps, rotors, modules etc.

    I'm sure others here will know more and better than I .
